Met Opera Broadcast in HD:
The Academy Center of the Arts has just announced the Metropolitan Opera HD Broadcast 19-20 season, featuring Wozzeck on Sunday, 1/19 at 2:00pm in the Historic Academy of Music Theatre.
After wowing audiences with his astounding production of Lulu in 2015, South African artist William Kentridge now focuses his extraordinary visual imagination on Berg’s other operatic masterpiece, set in an apocalyptic pre–World War I environment. Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin is on the podium for this important event, with baritone Peter Mattei making his highly anticipated role debut as the title character. Soprano Elza van den Heever is Wozzeck’s unfaithful mate, and the commanding cast also includes tenor Christopher Ventris as the Drum-Major, bass-baritone Christian Van Horn as the Doctor, and tenor Gerhard Siegel as the Captain.
The Academy Center of the Arts is proud to partner with Opera on the James to offer a pre-screening talk, beginning 45-minutes prior to the screening.
Join the Academy, Foster Fuels, and Opera on the James as Peter speaks about Wozzeck and relevant topics related to the Broadcasted Opera.
